‘Men and Blood Clots’ – discussion, information and opportunity to ask questions

A diagnosis of a venous thromboembolism (VTE), also known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE) or ‘blood clots’, can have a life-long impact. Accessing information to understand why a clot has occurred, how to reduce risk and what to the journey to recovery may involve, are often just the starting points to recovery. Sometimes questions and issues can be gender specific, yet there is little published gender-specific information.

This meeting will seek to address issues often raised with Thrombosis UK by men diagnosed with a blood clot.

Welcoming Dr Will Lester, Consultant in Thrombosis and Haemostasis, Clinical Psychologist, Prof Paul Bennett and patient advocate and past-Trustee of Thrombosis UK, Shaun Kinghorn, the panel will discuss and consider key topics from a male perspective.

This will include:

– The impact of clots and treatment on lifestyle, work, sports, and hobbies.

– Understanding blood clots, risk factors for men and reducing risk in the future.

– Talking with family, friends, and employers.

– Making the most of your health professionals’ appointments.

– Coping with worries & concerns.

– Maximising quality of life following a thrombosis.

There will be an opportunity to submit questions during the webinar, and registered attendees are invited to pre-submit questions (treated in confidence) for the panel to discuss during the meeting. To submit a question please email: jo@thrombosisuk.org
